The Storemapper plugin is a favorite of restaurants, wholesale dealers, retail stores and many other multi-location businesses.

Installation

Use the following steps to install and use the plugin…

  1. Upload wp-storemapper.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Navigate to /wp-admin/options-general.php?page=wp_storemapper_settings and enter your Storemapper account ID.
  4. Place the Storemapper content on your site using one of the following methods:
    • Place <?php wp_storemapper_content(); ?> in your template(s). This function call takes up to two optional parameters: a title parameter, which is a string (ex. ‘My Storemapper Content‘), and a tag parameter, that accepts a string to be used as the HTML tag that wraps the title string from the title parameter. When title is left empty, no title will be output. When title is set and tag is left empty the title will be wrapped in h2 tags by default. For example <?php wp_storemapper_content( 'My Storemapper Content', 'h1' ); ?> will output the Storemapper content preceeded by <h1>My Storemapper Content</h1>.
    • Insert a shortcode into page or post content using the Storemapper button in the editor toolbar.
    • Add the Storemapper widget to a widget area in the WordPress admin under Appearance > Widgets.

Note: Title output using the title tag feature will automatically have the class wp-storemapper-title added, which can be used for additional CSS styling.

Can I bulk update my stores?

Yes, read more about that on this support thread.

Can I add categories to my locations to differentiate their features?

Yes, read more about categorizing your store (drive up location, showroom, pick-up online orders,
Open Late, etc.) for later filtering here.

Addresses can be listed a lot of different ways. What is the proper way to list my stores for upload?

We have boiled down the questions asked most by users and compiled that information in this
support thread.

Are there any limitations when outputting the Storemapper content on my site?

Yes. The content is limited to being displayed only once per page/post. You may see unintended output if you attempt to display the Storemapper content on a post or page using both the shortcode button in the post editor and via a widget area that displays on the same page for example.
